Cortonesi : The Legacy of Montalcino

The Cortonesi family has been making wine in Montalcino since the 1970’s, purely for family, friends and neighbours enjoyment. In 1985 they began to offer their wines commercially and since then have seen great success internationally. Highly regarded by wine enthusiasts and press alike, the Cortonesi wines exemplify the diversity of the Montalcino terroir by sourcing fruit almost exclusively from two estate owned vineyards in the north and south-east. The favorable location of these vineyards, and the rocky soil where they are planted, all contribute to the making of deep and elegant wines.

Whether you’re looking for your new favourite wine to pair with pizza or pasta night or to add prestige to your cellar, discover the delights of the sangiovese grape and the impressive power of the hills of Montalcino through the wines of Cortonesi.


Let’s Get Physical – Skin Contact Wines

The latest craze in wine is here to stay and for good reason! Skin contact wines, otherwise known as orange, amber or ramato, are white wines that are fermented or macerated in contact with their skins, which creates a slightly darker or orange hue to the juice. Known for their bold, intense and sometimes savoury aromatics as well as deeper tannic structure and texture, skin contact wines have opened up a new door for wine enthusiasts and have incredible potential for food and wine pairing.

Check out our selection of Skin Contact Wines from all over the winemaking world, from right here at home to the ruggedly beautiful regions in Slovenia.
